Baseboards are the narrow wooden boards fixed running along with the bottom line of an interior wall also known as skirting.

Ø  Purpose of Baseboards:

The purpose of the baseboard is to cover the joint between the wall surfaces and the floor. It covers the uneven edges of the meeting point of floor and interior wall resulting in the graceful and eye-catching work finishing. It also protects the edges and bottom line of the wall from being affected by the outside sources while washing or cleaning the floor. It adds grace to the wall and makes your house look lovely.

Ø  Materials of Baseboards:

Plastic baseboards are also made and come in various plastic compounds. UPVC is the most common among all.

Casings are the moldings around the doors and windows of your home and the baseboard should be taller than the width of the casing. The baseboards should be noticeable but not so over showy. There are various ranges of prices for wooden baseboards depending on the type of wood and the height of the baseboard.

·         Cost of baseboards:

Baseboards made from softwoods are more cost-effective than hardwoods or other materials. However, the cost of baseboards depends on the area of the house where installing crown molding and baseboard are required and also depends on the style, quality, and width of baseboards to be installed.

·         Match of door and window casing
